The acoustic response of a semireverberant enclosure with two interacting, velocity-prescribed source distributions was analyzed using standard modal analysis techniques with a view toward a better understanding of active noise control. Different source and enclosure dimensions, source separations, and single-wall admittances were studied over representative frequency bandwidths of 10 Hz with source relative phase as a parameter. Results indicate that power radiated into the enclosure agree qualitatively with the spatial average of the mean square pressure, even though the reverberant field is nondiffuse. Decreases in acoustic power can therefore be used to estimate global noise reduction in a nondiffuse semireverberant environment. As might be expected, parametric studies indicate that maximum power reductions of up to 25 dB can be achieved when secondary and primary sources are compact and closely spaced. Although less success is achieved with increasing frequency and source separation or size, significant suppression of up to 8 dB still occurs over the 1 to 2 Hz bandwidth.
